Chick Peas

Beans are great food storage items. I have a variety of beans in my food storage. Black Beans, Kidney Beans, Great Northern Beans, Pork and Beans and Garbanzo Beans or as they are better known.....Chick Peas.

I like Chick Peas! But I am sure there are other ways to eat them besides in Salads and to make Hummus. So I am doing a little internet research to find some Chick Pea Recipes.

I thought I would share some of the recipes with you.
